Joker is the most profitable comic book movie of all time

Capture of the teaser trailer from Joker

According to Forbes, Joker has bagged a total of $304.2 million in North America alone, after only five weeks in theatres. From Joaquin Phoenix's stormy interview, the concerned letter to Warner Bros. written by the families of school shooting survivors, director Todd Phillips lashing out at the "far left" and "woke culture", the revelation that Jared Leto tried to kill the movie, and the news that the fictional villain would be paying royalties to real-life pedophile Gary Glitter, Joker has scarcely been out of the headlines.

While other comic-based movies do have grossed more than the movie, however, the movie's budget which was United States dollars 62.5 million, was taken into consideration. The report also adds that the film is the third-cheapest $900 million grosser of all time after Bohemian Rhapsody ($905 million on a $52 million budget) and The Lion King ($968 million on a $55 million budget in 1994).

The most profitable "big" comic book movies are Venom ($854 million on a $90 million budget), Batman ($411 million/$35 million), Deadpool ($783 million/$58 million), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ($200 million/$13.5 million), The Mask ($351 million/$23 million) and now Joker ($956 million/$62.5 million).

As we approach the end of 2019, it's time to take stock of the year's biggest box office surprises.

After all, the likes of "Aquaman" and "Wonder Woman" - well-received and profitable, though they were - still saw Warner Bros. taking on huge budgets to make them happen. Phillips had explained that the plot is more about how Joker becomes the man he came to be. In contrast to all those films even though, Joker will generate its $1 billion gross without China or a 3D model to enhance sales.

In the movie, we see how Sophie goes to see Arthur performing a comedy act.
